This is the seventeenth issue of Seeking Yield by Staked, a weekly update about the most interesting things happening in crypto asset staking and lending.


🚨 Staked Launches Staking on IRIS Network

Staked has launched staking on IRIS Network, a Tendermint-based inter-chain service infrastructure and protocol for building trustworthy and distributed business applications. 

Intending to create a foundation for distributed business applications, the IRISnet hub aims to be a zone and regional hub connected to Cosmos main hub.

IRIS Network expects to facilitate both staking tokens and fee tokens to support the operation of the network. IRIS, the native staking token of IRIS Network, plays an integral role in consensus and governance. 

To delegate your IRIS to Staked, please use the following address:

⚖️ Tezos Activates Athens Upgrade

After nearly three months of on-chain governance processes, Tezos Athens has officially has been activated. In a decentralized fashion, active participants of the Tezos network were able to increase the gas limit and reduce the roll size - a tremendous accomplishment for on-chain governance.

In the Promotion Period or final phase of voting, 216 bakers representing 47,031 rolls (~84.3% of the stake or ~$750M) voted to activate Athens A.

For more, Jack Arluck’s recent piece reflecting on the upgrade is available here.
